Predictors for achieving protein and energy requirements in undernourished hospital patients

Abstract: BACKGROUND & AIMS: Providing sufficient protein an energy is considered crucial in the treatment of undernutrition. Still, the majority of undernourished hospital patients have a suboptimal protein and energy intake. The aim of this study was to investigate predictors for achieving protein and energy requirements on the fourth day of admission in undernourished hospitalized patients.
